Cidade Alta, Luanda

3.1
#1 of 10 in Historic Sites in Angola
Lovers of old Portuguese architecture will enjoy visiting Cidade Alta, considered one of the most beautiful quarters in the capital. Walk around the streets adorned with elegant buildings, and soak in the colonial architecture. Note, however, that taking photos in the area is forbidden, given the proximity of the presidential residence and the heavy military security. Visit the local church and museum to find out more about the capital's history. See Cidade Alta and all Luanda has to offer by arranging your trip with our Luanda online holiday maker .

  • Cidade Alta represents the modern face of Luanda, where roads are good and scenes are pleasant. you can find there the new parliament house as seen in the photo.  more »
  • A paradise!! A place preserved, a beautiful small town and magic, did not enter a car in the city, there is no pavement, is in the ground, there is no lighting on the street (posts), only in shops and houses, an amazing trade. 4/4 tours and Burger through the dunes and lagoons, the most amazing sunset I've ever seen.

  • Rustic and acoustic restaurant on the main street has a nice atmosphere, friendly and attentive staff and a sea bass with divine Brown, with 3 side dishes to choose. Not to be missed. Note 10
